I am a huge foodie and have traveled for most of my adult life. I never usually write reviews unless I wake up in the morning and think about the experience the next day. The food was delectable! Savory and everything I would want in...More

A good friend suggested we eat here after arriving in Hilo. Arrived near 11am and had a short wait (no more than 5 minutes) before being seated. Heard about the portions and variety of entrees beforehand. Our party of 3 ordered the light breakfast (eggs,...More

We go to this restaurant more than any other in Hilo. If you go early (around 6pm) you can usually get right in. The lines start forming around 6:30. The food is local Hawaiian style and is served in large portions at reasonable prices. The...More

My husband, daughter and I flew into Hilo from Oahu on a very early morning flight. We looked online for a local restaurant for breakfast and found this GEM not far from the airport. We were seated right away and then the place quickly filled...More

Nice place, friendly "high-tech" staff, lots of people, so very popular. This is the positive part. But what about the food? Disappointed. I have the Teriyaki chicken and what I git what a lot of greasy chicken skin. My partner asked for a steak and...More
